Ever onward…I am now blogging at www.mailtribune.com/agefriendly. My husband is partnering with me in a twice-weekly hand-off of 300 words or more on age-friendly living. That’s Howard in the photo above, standing next to me near the ocean where we do not live–but we love to visit. Could be interesting–this business of public writing. Our adult children are in awe–or is that wide-eyed disbelief?
Blogging as a married couple helps us meet the “regular” blogging obligation we made to the newspaper that hosts this Community Blog (Medford, Oregon Mail Tribune) and keeps our dinner table conversations focused–and definitely feistier– because we do not see eye to eye on this business of aging. We are both, however, passionate about finding ways to create friendlier living environments that lead to greater independence for aging people–like us. For example, I have this “Aging-in-a-Box” idea that Howard always raises his eyebrows skeptically when I raise it …will share that concept and see what you think in an upcoming post.
This blogging business could change our relationship after 30 years of marriage. Heck–it already has….
I will still do an occasional blog here on this site as well but probably just as irregularly as I have in recent months. I appreciate the wonderfully supportive 148 comments received to date about the Age Friendly Innovators website and this particular blog. And keep any constructively critical suggestions coming -we listen and will be responsive. Got the suggestions re SEO optimization and we are ON IT.
